Goliath, a global leader in the toy and game industry,
announced today that it has acquired Tucker, one of the world’s top
designers and marketers of innovative outdoor toys.
Established in 2001, Tucker found
success in the sports toy category by developing exciting new products
that transform play by offering innovative twists. Their most successful
line, the iconic Phlat Ball, is now a staple in close to 60 countries,
having sold over 23 million units. This unique sports toy transforms
from a flying disc to a ball when thrown. Furthermore, Tucker’s
award-winning, innovative items are the perfect complement to Goliath’s
extensive toy and game line.
“After our most recent acquisition
of Britz ‘n’ Pieces in Australia, Tucker is a great fit. We see an
enormous potential in outdoor games and toys. By combining this with our
successful product ranges, including Wahu, trampolines, Rocket Fishing
Rod and more, we’ve firmly established our position as a market leader
in the category,” said Adi Golad, founder of Goliath.
“When Adi approached us last year to explore possible synergies, we started talking and it resulted
in a real win-win. We at Tucker can focus on what we do best, creating
innovative “wow” products for all to enjoy,” said Mike Goldman, Founder
and President of Tucker. “All international distributor agreements will
remain in effect and retailers will continue to be serviced by their
existing distributors. We will make the ownership change seamless to
both our distributors and retail partners,” he continued.
Going forward, Tucker will operate as a center of ideation and R&D within Goliath to create fun and innovative new products.
